Safety Solutions For The Medical Industry
Frequently Asked Question
We are manufacturing medical equipment such as ventilators, artificial cardiopulmonary devices and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation machines (ECMO). Do you have any instruments that comply with safety standards for leakage current testing (patient leakage current) or insulation withstand voltage testing?
To test the safety of medical equipment such as ventilators, artificial cardiopulmonary devices and ECMO, we recommend the Hioki ST5540 Leak Current HiTester, which complies with the IEC60601-1:(2005) 3rd Standard.
